Nugent happy playing for Burnley boss Laws

Portsmouth striker David Nugent is happy with his return to Burnley.

Nugent is also pleased to be playing for Clarets boss Brian Laws.

"It's been so confusing but I want to get my head down and concentrate on playing for Burnley," said Nugent. "It was hard. I missed the last game because of it. I got called back to Portsmouth then got told to come back to Burnley but didn't make it in time.

"I missed the game because I had to sign by five o'clock that day (Friday), which didn't happen.

"I had a few things to discuss at the Portsmouth end and there was some stuff that went on I don't want to talk about, but it's all done and I'm glad to be here now.

"I'm just glad that it's all sorted and I am a Burnley player to the end of the season and hopefully longer. I want to get back in the side, start playing well again and score some goals and get Burnley away from the relegation zone.

"When Brian Laws was Scunthorpe manager and I was at Bury he tried to get me down to Scun, so it's nice he has faith in me and wants to keep me here.

"When a new manager comes in you are always scared you might have to move on but he said from day one he wanted to keep me, which is what I wanted."
